Although waiting for your wedding to arrive can seem to take a lifetime, once the day finally dawns, it seems to fly by in a whirlwind of flowers, vows and dancing. Here are our four tips to help you enjoy and make the most of your Gatlinburg wedding day.

1. Get plenty of sleep the night before.
Everything’s all planned out, so you can rest the night before. If you’re too light-headed to focus on your vows or too tired to dance the night away, it’ll keep the day from being as spectacular as you dreamed it would be. With a well-rested glow, you can enjoy your wedding until the late hours of the evening.
2. Enjoy time with your wedding party.
Brides and grooms who have wedding parties, best friends or parents with them while getting ready should take time to enjoy the moment they have with the people who have supported your relationship.
Take a minute for a group hug and let them all know how much you love them. No one will be happier for you or more thrilled that you found the love of your life than the people you’ve invited to be part of your special day.
3. Focus on each other.
It’s easy to get caught up in the rush of the day, but always remember why you planned this special occasion. Even if you feel hectic, take a moment to focus on each other and the reassurance that you’re doing this for no one but yourselves.
Though ceremonies and receptions planned with Stony Brook are stress-free for the bride, groom and guests, there’s always a bit of nerves before the ceremony begins. Not only will thoughts of the life you’re building together calm your nerves, it will also add sweetness to the spirit of the ceremony while saying your vows.
4. Enjoy the Reception.
If you’re having a small gathering or lavish reception after, make sure to enjoy it! Some couples get so caught up in talking to guests that they don’t even taste their food or take part in the dancing. Be sure to take a time to enjoy these things before the night ends.
